Herbert Hoover carried Marion county by at least 35,000 majority. In the congressional race Ludlow Defeated congressman Updike by at least 11,000 was there such a tremendous defeat for a Democrat solid South is badly Shaw a ered by George r. Holmes International news service new York nov. 7.�? the most amazing presi a dental Campaign in history a has had the most amazing outcome. Herbert Hoover has been elected to the presidency in one of the most if not the most a sweeping landslides Ever recorded. Governor Al Smith has i suffered the most crushing defeat Ever visited upon a democratic candidate for the White House and Down in the resounding crash with him went his party s candidates for Congress for governor and for Many minor offic6sii throughout the country. Some forty millions of american voters have spoken and How in three hitherto impregnable solid South has been broken in three places in Orth Carolina Virginia find Florida and before the Day is done another Hole May develop in it Texas where it is nip and tuck. Governor Smith lost his own state of. New York by More than 100,000 votes and ran behind the rest of the ticket in. Doing so. When the Sun Rose this morning upon the wreckage of democratic Hopes governor Smith was apparently sure of but seven states eix of them in the South Alabama South Carolina Arkansas Louisiana Mississippi and Georgia and one in the North Massachusetts. Two others appeared doubtful Texas in the South and Rhode Island in the North. The electoral Hurricane that blew Herbert Hoover into the presidency by the greatest Republican majority in history was still going today. Greetings to strangers. North Carolina has joined Virginia and Florida in the break up of the solid South and later returns this morning put. The state in the Republican column for the first time since reconstruction Days. Before Sunset Texas May also join the boaters. With some 39 counties missing this morning. Hoover was maintaining a 10,000 Lead Over Smith in the Lone Star state and in View of the dimensions. Of the Republican sweep elsewhere in the South there seemed to be Little a reason to doubt that Hoover would also gee those 20 electoral votes to add to his already unbelievable total. By Way of compensation however Rhode Island s 5 electoral votes drifted Over into the Smith column this morning by a. Scant 2,000 majority. All the rest Are Hoover s. He made a clean sweep through the Border states set the Prairies afire in the Corn Aud wheat Belt mopped up the the Pacific coast and raced like a Zephyr through the individual East and save Only in two spots Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Never anything like it. Never was there such a sweep for a Republican. And never was there such a defeat for a Democrat. Or. Hoover apparently was certain this morning of a minimum electoral College total of 412 votes with 25 others Texas 20 and Rhode Island s 5, still hanging in the balance. For governor Smith there was but 94, As compared with the 127 that Cox pulled in 1920 and the 136 that went for Davis in 1924, and they were the worst beaten democrats in history. From that May be judged the magnitude of yesterday s cataclysm. Without Texas Hoover has an electoral total of 424 As against 87 for governor Smith. With the 20 from Texas it soars to 444, a High record for All time. Even in 1912, the year of the Republican split and the democratic landslide Woodrow Wilson Only garnered 435 electoral votes and eight years ago in 1920, when the late Warren g. Harding Cyclone through the nation the Republican total was Only 404. The overnight shifts disclose that giving Texas to Hoover Only eight states gave their electoral vote to governor Smith a Massachusetts and Rhode Island in the North both by scant margins and Alabama Arkansas Georgia Mississippi Louisiana arid South Carolina in the South two of the metropolises of the South Atlanta and Birmingham continued on Page Twenty-0 i
